Challenge for KLSNS11 - It's a New Year!



And this is pretty much what I looked like the day after ..... rofl! Just kidding .... I never had curlers in my hair unless they were hot rollers back in high school - 'membah big puffy hair!?!


I made this for the kick-off challenge at KL Stampin .... check it out here! I had so much fun making this card and using the sketch. I actually bought this CC Design stamp - she's Kiki La Rue - months ago and it had yet to see ink although I loved it the second I saw it .... isn't that funny how we are that way!


Here is the sketch:




It's hard to see from my sad little camera and it's washed out colors that this is super colorful. I propped up her little rollers on 3d dots because all rollers should be puffy and springy, lol! I also fluffled up the flowers to give the card more dimension. I added the flowers behind the image for the sketch requirement and fastened them with a button. I have to say, I am liking the way this turned out and it will makes it's way to the home of a friend this week ..... I hope she likes it, too :)

Hugs!
